As you might have guessed, this post is about stuff that interests, well, me…

I love when I have a chance to see Dublin lit up at night. Met a friend in town last week and took this picture of Grafton Street.

I was out on a jog this morning and was listening to a few episodes of one of my favourite podcasts, Question of the Day . During one of the episodes, they mentioned a Washington Post Reporter who puts out a daily newsletter entitled, “Links I would GChat you if we were friends.” It is basically a list of things from the internet that she found interesting.

So I thought, “I’d like to try that.” Not as an email, but more like a daily (well, most days) blog post. Since it’s about stuff I find interesting, it’s likely that my topics will often include:

  • Jesus
  • Church/Missional Church Stuff
  • Dublin/Ireland
  • The Red Sox
  • Apple/Mac stuff
  • Behaviour Economics
  • Books
  • Television

But, day-to-day it could be anything. And while generally it’d be stuff I seen for the first time that day, I’m keeping my options open.

So my goal is to try this for a month, and then see if, well if I’m still interested.

That said, here are my day number 1 links:

Do Introverts and Extroverts See Reality Differently? – Susan Cain

I loved Cain’s TED Talk from 2012 and her book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop TalkingAnd since this week we received some clues that we are a perfect 4 for 4 in having introverted kids, this has been on my radar recently.

160 years of US immigration trends, mapped –

I actually saw this a few weeks ago and found it fascinating. I looked it up again to show Liz and found myself mesmerised again.

Closing the Door on Vengeance – Brian Zahn

I only discovered Zahn in the past year, but always look forward to what he has to say.

Why I’m Putting Ebooks on the Shelf for 2016 – Michael Hyatt

This post caught my attention because, I made this decision shortly after moving to Dublin. In the year prior I shifted almost entirely to books on my Kindle app to save on moving expenses. But after a year of reading almost exclusively on a screen I now try to get paper books when possible.

So that’s a few things that I found worth a look. And ironically, if you’d like to read the links in an ebook format, you can download that here.

Until Monday…
